  1. Very cool, will you keep it at the cabin Dave?
  2. It's called a jet skirt because you can see the cockpit!
  3. I had my 2000 17' Legend taken apart to have 12 rivets replaced and have the floor and carpet replaced last year at Heritage Marine in London last September. They do full restorations and might be a place where you can have your boat repainted. Not cheap, I paid $5,000 for everything. The labour to cut out and replace the floatation foam was part of the reason for all of the labour. I was very happy with the results. If you have your boat restored check with your insurance broker to make sure your policy is up to the new value of the boat.
  4. It was Brad Pitts brother Stu
  5. My rebuild was $4,800 Glen on a 19 year old boat.
  6. Heritage Marine in London. They replaced 11 rivets and replaced the floor and carpeting. They did a great job.
  7. Hey Glen, if you want to have it professionally repaired let me know. I can recommend a place near London that fixed mine last year. Not cheap but it was done right.
  8. I have my 2000 17" Legend taken apart at a marina last fall to have 11 rivets replaced. I was told up front that cutting out the old floatation will be a big part of the labour because it is spray foam which adheres to the honeycomb pattern of supports under the hull. The total bill was $5,000 which included replacing the floatation foam, flooring and carpet. There was 90 hours of labour in total. I know yours is a crack and not rivets but just giving you an idea of what was involved.
  9. Hey is your place near Sturgeon Bay? I am asking because I used to work with someone who retired up there with her husband. Their names are Nancy and Russ Ley and their son Jeff bought a cottage across the bay from them. My good friend Eldon used to manage the liquor store there and moved the the Rosseau location a few years ago.
  10. It's for sure a cycle. My Dad explained the same thing back in the 60's when we had a cottage on the 14th concession north of Balm Beach. I have been boating on the bay most of my life and love the high water because I know all of the shoals in the Moon Basin and 12 Mile Bay area where I do most of my boating. They are all well under water and make for some great high water small mouth bass habitat.
  11. I have in fact been there and loved it. I have always been an aviation buff and fly RC planes so it is right in my wheelhouse. The SR-71 is my favourite all time plane and the way they displayed it is fantastic. For everyone in the GTA you can get there in 9 - 10 hours from our area as part of a visit to Washington DC.
  12. Hey Art have you ever visited the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center?
